House Committee sneaks DACA-amnesty amendment into spending bill allowing illegal aliens to compete with Americans for Federal jobs
In an outrageous move, the House Appropriations Committee passed a spending bill late last night that allows illegal aliens who have received the unconstitutional executive DACA amnesty to hold jobs with the Federal Government! The amendment to add the provision was offered by Rep. Pete Aguilar of California and passed by voice vote.
The Committee Chairman, Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, denied a request for a recorded vote, presumably so nobody could be held accountable.
Federal jobs are almost solely reserved for U.S. citizens. In fact, www.USAjobs.gov, the fed's job bank, says the only exception is when Congress specifically calls for it in the annual spending bill.
